[PATCH] audit: clear thread flag for new children



From: Tony Jones <tonyj suse de>

Minor performance enhancement.

Thread flag TIF_SYSCALL_AUDIT is not cleared for new children when audit 
context creation has been disabled (auditctl -e0). This can cause new children 
forked from a parent created when audit was enabled to not take the fastest 
syscall path thru entry.S
